Abstract (en)

[origin: US2013225161A1] An electronic device receives a list of available networks and associated access credentials via a cellular-telephone network. These available networks may be other than the cellular-telephone network and may use a communication technique other than a cellular-telephone communication technique, such as an IEEE 802.11 protocol. For example, a base station in the cellular-telephone network may track the location of the electronic device, and may provide the list to the electronic device when the cellular-telephone network performance is constrained or degraded. In response to receiving the list, the electronic device may select a network from the available networks based on a communication criterion, such as: proximity to the electronic device, a signal strength, security, and/or communication quality. Information specifying this selection may be provided via the cellular-telephone network, and then instructions that transition communication with the electronic device from the cellular-telephone network to the selected network may be received.
